OEEGA NSW raise $30,000 for the Children’s Cancer Institute in Sydney




The New South Wales branch of the Organisation of Hellene and Hellene-Cypriot Women of Australia (OEEGA NSW) has raised $30,000 for the Children’s Cancer Institute (CCI) in Sydney.

The organisation raised the funds through their annual Radio Marathon held in November in collaboration with Sydney’s 2MM Radio station.

At a small presentation ceremony today, the OEEGA NSW Committee presented representatives from the CCI with the $30,000 cheque.

Present at the event was President of OEEGA NSW, Irene Anesti; Senior Scientist at Brain Tumour Group, CCI, Dr Maria Tsoli; CCI Relationship Manager, Nadya Landey; and a representative from 2MM Radio Station; among others.

Ms Anesti spoke and thanked everyone for their support, with a special thanks to 2MM radio station for helping to promote the fundraising radio marathon.

Dr Tsoli later told The Greek Herald that the donation will support three children enrolled in a personalised medicine clinical trial called ‘Zero Childhood Cancer.’
